Why PDP, BJP shying away from govt formation: National Conference

We are not the baby of any agency, nor the creation of any outside sponsor. We owe our existence and power to common masses of Jammu and Kashmir and we only bank upon the public support.

The National Conference (NC) Saturday said it is neither the creation of an outside sponsor nor the baby of any agency as it owes its strength to the people of the state.

“We are not the baby of any agency, nor the creation of any outside sponsor. We owe our existence and power to common masses of Jammu and Kashmir and we only bank upon the public support,” NC working president’s Political Advisor Tanvir Sadiq said in a statement. 

"Now that PDP-BJP alliance in the Rajya Sabha is clear why are the two parties shying away from forming the government," he said and added that are they finding it embarrassing to admit before the people and convince them on joining hands to form the government after indulging in fierce attacks against each other.

"The two parties got so much entangled in creating hype over the issues of Article 370, uniform civil code, revocation of AFSPA and dialogue with Pakistan for resolving Kashmir issue that they have become deaf and dumb now as to how to retract from that rhetoric,” Tanvir said. 

Accusing PDP of politicizing Afzal Guru’s hanging, Tanvir said; "The whimpers of PDP about the hanging of Afzal Guru are nothing but a political gimmick and Afzal’s legal fight started and ended in Mufti’s tenure.”

He said Guru’s hanging was the most unfortunate thing that could happen in any democratic country and PDP has no right to take political mileage out of it.
